against his democratic challenge elizabeth warren. now he's slipping behind. in four of the five most recent po polls in the senate race, elizabeth warren is now beating scott brown. we got their first debate last week. and scott brown decided what he was going to make that debate about, what he was going to bring up unprompted repeatedly, what he's decided to make his campaign mostly about now is his judgment on elizabeth warren's racial heritage, her family heritage, her race. >> professor warren claimed that she was a native american, a person of color. as you can see, she's not. that being said, she checked the box and she had an opportunity, actually, to make a decision throughout her career when she applied to penn and harvard. >> she tried to make the heritage part of the campaign before. remember back in may? got a lot of national press. he started with a line of attack that he should be the authority on the family tree. he gets tons of national attention. but his argument, scott brown running against elizabeth warren's native american heritage did not play with voters in mass
for the senate on the issue of elizabeth warren's ethnicity and what he thinks it really is. >> professor warren claimed that she was a native american, a person of color, and as you can see, she's not. that being said, she checked the box and she had an opportunity, actually, to make a decision throughout her career, when she apply to penn and harvard, she checked the box claiming she was a native american. and you know, clearly she's not. >> clearly. "clearly she's not." that was how he opened up his first debate against elizabeth warren. the very first ad that scott brown aired after that first debate was not an ad addressing any specific issues in the country or in the senate race, but rather an ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. scott brown has had a campaign website up for weeks in which he describes elizabeth warren as a, quote, fake indian. that's the language he uses on his website. after all of that, scott brown said yesterday while he did not condone the tomahawk chop, war whoop, making fun of native americans behavior by his senate staffers, he said that he did think
the highest profile senate rate in the country between scott brown and elizabeth warren has turned into a flat out racial campaign with the republican incumbent running against his challenger just straight up on the basis of race. everybody has been reporting on this campaign as if that fact about it is normal, but it's really not normal. it's not even normal in a country where we still have native american football mascots. the brown campaign running on race got worse today. it's hard to believe, but it did. that story is ahead. producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. why not take a day to explore your own backyard? with two times the points on travel, you may find yourself asking why not, a lot. chase sapphire preferred. there's more to enjoy. look! she wears the scarlet markings!

to an elizabeth warren event and tried to deliver this cake to her. get it it? elizabeth warren is like an occupy activist. so she gets a cake from scott brown. their stunt was trying to deliver this melting sheet cake. they were so proud to have it they tweeted a picture of themselves trying to pull off the stunt. there's a long history of people trying to provoke their opponents so they do something embarrassing or damaging. if they could have that reaction while someone is filming, that would be great. what i'm about to show you is not that. it's not run of the mill politics. it's not delivering an unappealing sheet cake to your opponent which you find hilarious. this is different. here's the context. at last week's debate between scott brown and elizabeth warren, senator brown right out of the gate, before anything was discussed, first thing scott brown attacked elizabeth warren for being native american because he says, she looks white to him. >> she checked the box claiming she was a native american. clearly, she's not. >> scott brown is also a one-man racial litmus test. don't know if your
trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of former troops serving in the war zone. and today's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentiall
elizabeth warren. i use the word desperate on purpose. after releasing one ad attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race, after his staffers were caught childishly mocking native americans with the whole tom hawk chop and war whoop thing, after the cherokee nation asked scott brown to apologize for that and he refused to do so, after all that scott brown has put out a second ad just today again attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. the scott brown campaign must have some amazing internal poll numbers showing that a race-based campaign is working wonders for him. because i don't know how else you explain this. it's not a whisper campaign, anonymous flyers on windshields in church parking lots like we used to expect for this sort of thing. this comes straight from the campaign unapologetically. just to be clear as a bell about what the story is. it's not that scott brown has ever disproven or anybody has ever disproven that elizabeth warren has native american ancestry. it's not been disproven. it's not a lie. scott brown's whole beef with her, the whole basis for his u.s.
recreating it. >> you talk about elizabeth warren believing she's native american. how many do you believe are native american? >> everybody. >>> i don't know one black person without a -- >> it reminds he of that dave chappelle skit with the blind racist guy. the point about ignoring race. they try this in france. in france there's a system where they don't actually count people by race. what they find is, because they don't measure it, they can't fix it. they're having a really hard time going after discrimination in housing and employment because nobody keeps records on it. it is still important to measure it to make sure we're holding up to our values. we have to find a way, i think, to be inclusive and imagine that tiff. >> it's interesting for this to be happening during the reelection campaign of president obama. in part because he was like hyper speed version of the social done construction of race. at the beginning of the campaign, he was insufficiently black and by the end of the campaign he was way too black. the idea that blackness was even constructed in that way. in this case
he's campaigning with the wrong guy. >>> scott brown's race-baiting comments about elizabeth warren and his supporter's racist chances have the cherokee nation asking the senator for an apology. >>> and could democrats turn arizona blue this november? romney's lead in the poll is shrinking and the senate race is heating up. please share your thoughts with us on facebook and on twitter using #edshow. we're right back. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. just begin with america's favorite soups. bring out chicken broccoli alfredo. or best-ever meatloaf. go to campbellskitchen.com for recipes, plus a valuable coupon. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." thanks for watching tonight. mitt romney held a manufacturing roundtable

consistent with scott heenniscared. this is a tactic. elizabeth warren has consistently campaigned on the facts and scott brown has consistently, personally attacked. and now his staff, and it's important to underscore that, these are not just overzealous supporters these aeoe w taxpayers pay their salary, who are on his payroll, who are supposed to be advising him on policy, advocating for constituents. all eyes are on massausetts with this senate race, and this is a very sad commentary we know that scott- >>t d yak o senator brown's statement to his staff? do you consider that an apology? does it go far enough? and what about the reaction of the cherokee chief? >> the reaction from the chief is appropriate, and certainly, not surprising. scott brown has not gone far enough. you know, if affiliation and association were irrelevant, scott brown wouldn't continue to distance himself from mitt romney. i am a former -- before i was elected to office, i was an aide to a united states senar. and it is fai t say that your staf ny aefio ofu, but a reflection on you. >> when he said, in th
's crazy. >> ihought we would have been thiativemen quont aently it's coming back. >> elizabeth warren, senator scott brown is getting personal. it has to do with elizabeth warren's claims of native american heritage. both sides are airing o the debate in tv buys across the e. is message. >> elizabeth warren is trying to put questions about her heritage behind her. >> she admitted to identifying herself as native arican to employers. she's facing tough questions about whether she claimed to be a minority for professional gain. >>ar did give an answer, the problem is, it keeps changing. >> is there anything else that will come out about you that we don't already know? >> you know, i don't think so, but who knows. >> as a kid, i never asked my mom for documentationn ta autur native american heritage. what kid would? but i knew my father's family didn't like she was part cherokee and part delaware. my parents had to elope. i never asked for and never got any benefit because of my herige. the people who hired m aai th didn't know about it. i'm elizabeth warren, i approve this message. scot
in the country. republican scott walker is doubling down on his claim that challenger elizabeth warren lied about being native american. things got ugly this weekend when brown's campaign staff started taunting with racist chants. >> a boston television station says four of the people are member of scott brown's campaign staff. one reportedly works in brown's united states senate office. what are the grounds for firing in his office any way? brown says the chanting is certainly something i don't condone, but he doesn't stop there. he actually repeats the attack, which inspired his staffers in the first place. he says the real offense is that warren said she was white and then checked the box saying that she was native american. then she changed her profile in her law directory once she made her tenure. so brown doesn't want to talk about massachusetts' economy, education or health care. he's fixated on elizabeth warren's racial heritage. in fact, he's launching this new attack ad. and race is the first thing talked about the in debate. >> warren claimed she was a native american, a person of colo
says he does not condone the video that reportedly shows his staffers doing a to elizabeth warren's claim of cher row ski descent. two recent polls have shown warren pulling ahead. madonna said she was being ironic when she called president obama a black muslim. madonna said i know he is not a muslim and what if he were? the point i was making a good man is a good man. >>> as part of education nation we've been looking at the stories and challenges of students across our country especially those at risks and stats show many african-american boys from low income urban areas face the greatest danger. a series called save my son takes a look at what urban family face trying to keep their kids away from bad influences including abuse in their own homes. >> i had a conversation with her, some of that stuff is as fresh as if it happened yesterday. >> i remember too, where it was, she fell to the floor and she got grabbed. i think it was a toaster and hit him. and then she was like -- the kids are in the room. and then he looked up, hit her one more time and then stopped. i'll never forg
-read opinion page. katrina vanden heuvel in "the washington post" writes this. elizabeth warren, the people's champion. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. go ahead. no, it's all right. i was just thinking about a joke i heard yesterday. go ahead. >> throughout the campaign, mark halperin, warren has delivered an unabashed populist message. she first made the common-sense case that no one succeeded alone. that successful businesspeople depend on what we've built together, an educated work force, roads and transport to deliver their products, a rule of law vital to working markets. this isn't a radical notion, but when adopted and badly phrased by president obama, it sparked the frenzied republican "we built it" campaign. warren will focus on the core issues and ask massachusetts voters to decide who is on their side. and if she wins, she'll not only lead a new generation of progressive reformers into the senate, but also begin to teach democrats how to fight for working people once more." mark? >> vanden heuvel, not ratner, on that. >> not ratner. >> we don't have ratner here to dispute. >> just to gam
. shelley berkley's race, elizabeth warren's state. claire mccaskill's race. it's helping democratic female candidates. >> because the problem is the republican party has very few constituencies left they can rely on. it's primarily old, white men. if you want to alienate women further than they've been alienated in this process, you have politicians like todd akin. they're suffering a gender gap. this makes it worse. i know it won't have an effect in the missouri race when it comes to the presidential contest, but it creates an image problem for other races in -- >> that's why nobody wanted to embrace this guy. they have to because they want to win the senate so bad. here's a new poll. let's take a look at the indiana senate race. congressman joe donnelly two points ahead of state treasurer richard mourdock. it's in the margin of error. it should set off alarm bells at the nrcs, shouldn't it, sam? >> yeah, i mean, listen, this is a trend not just about indiana. it's about, you know, maybe half a dozen states now where we're seeing democratic senate candidates basically rising up above the
elizabeth warren there pushing the president further to the left. right w democrats he a choice to make about wheer thea pha message of get washington unstuck by giving us back unified control. if elizabeth warren's in the sena and scott brown isn't, you're going to see a lot of democrats in the senate. but if he wins massachusetts, if the president wins massachusetts by 20 points,cottwn c >>ah and that, again, is how a failed mitt romney campaign is going to pose a problem. >> i thought scott brown, his campaign brilliantly made a terrible mistake about this native american stuff. just terrible. and he's been a brilliant campaigner. >> you know, mike barnicle has said that that is actually a big issue up in massachusetts among working-class swing voters,ut kifem mf'88 and bush going to one flag factory too much, you know, dukakis made a mistake on theledge of allegiance deal and bush hammered it home. i thought, yeah. i think he's gone too far on at. atome of brown's people were doing a tomahawk chop and chanting. >> and his staff. >> come on. >> yeah, his staff. >> his senate staff. a
what he was trying to -- the point he was trying to make. i think elizabeth warren probably did it better early on but you do need to be careful. in some ways it's stating the obvious. government has a role. they have infrastructure, education, we all need that to perform our jobs, our start-up businesses, whatever. but, you know, is it going the next step and saying, well, you know, no matter how successful you are we're going to take some of it. that's what people were hearing. that's where the president needs to be careful. i do think that that theme did resonate. >> you could imagine, you're a person of -- a perfect person to channel this. you can imagine a very effective conservative -- republican message that was also kind of antiwall street? >> yeah. i wish we did. >> yes. exactly. >> i'm not into wall street. independent of wall street. >> the question is why has -- >> that's one of the great mysteries. i think this is where right and left should agree. i think this is not ideological. these guys are still threats to our financial system. they should stand on their own t
that shows the democratic challenger, elizabeth warren, ahead of republican senator scott brown by five points, 43 to 38%. but a full 18% in the state say they remain undecided. >>> the president left for vegas this morning. how he's looking to cash in. >>> and we've heard a lot of conservatives questioning whether the polls are skewed. are they oversampling democrats? there's been a lot of chatter about that over the past few days. r.a. melbourne is standing by to explain the truth behind the spin. that's coming up. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics.
